Remember a few months ago when those of us with concerns about the safety and efficacy of COVID shots were called anti-vaxxers? Now that COVID has spread through the vaccinated, CNN quotes Fauci saying,
“We have very good vaccines, but we’ve got to get better platforms and immunogens, maybe with adjuvants that allow us to have a greater durability of protection,” Fauci said. Adjuvants are extra ingredients in vaccines that help them work better.
Just "very good"? CNN says they're "astonishingly good":
In clinical trials, the new mRNA vaccines have proven to be astonishingly good at protecting people against illness, hospitalizations and deaths, at least in the short term. Fauci said mRNA vaccines have other advantages, too. It’s relatively fast and easy to redesign them to better protect against new variants, for example.
Sure, if by "astonishingly good" you mean a 1% absolute risk reduction of symptomatic illness and no reduction in death as shown in the manufacturer's clinical trial.
Yet Fauci says "the durability isn't very long" and the article says "some of this drop off in our protection may be a result of the mRNA technology used to build some Covid-19 vaccines, such as those developed by Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech, which were the first in the world to use this platform."
These were or are still unknowns because the shots were experimental: the clinical trials are still going. But hey, the science was settled and there was nothing more to find out, right? The shots were going to stop COVID and anyone who refused to take them deserved have their lives made difficult (Dr. Leana Wen, Chicago Mayor Laurie Lightfoot, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio), wasn't listening to Jesus (New York Gov. Kathy Hochul) and deserved to be fired from their job (President Biden). Hope they enjoy their lifetime boosters, which the article says you need--either that or an entirely new vaccine. Maybe they can get it through a continuous IV drip.
Note that there's nothing in the article about reducing risk factors such as excess weight or high blood sugar. Doctors would have to admit their dietary advice has been an even bigger failure than the attempt at COVID containment.
